My mum had breast cancer which went to her bones, the meds she was on caused her to be constipated from time to time. Going for a wek without a bowel movement is definately not good. The community nurses who came to check on mum, were most emphatic that she not go more than three days without a movement and they had as their final weapon something referred to as "The Milkshake". Its mere mention put the wind up mum (You could say it scared the crap out of her). I will try to fnd out what was in it. A drink is easier to take than a pill.
